The North American Stock Car Racing Association (NASCAR) has been a way for many disenfranchised people that the mainstream media forgets about could have a way out. A largely Caucasian population, they also make up the majority of the NASCAR fan base. Given their historic association with bootlegging of moonshine during prohibition, it makes sense that they would make up a large chunk of their employment and internship population.
Now NASCAR has their latest internship, and while the normal requirements of being a US citizen or at least having work authorization were there, as was the requirement to be a sophomore in college or further along, both of these standardized rules weren’t the major disqualifier.
Instead, the requirement is that the applicant “Be a member of one or more of the following races/ethnic minority classifications: Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Latino or Hispanic, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.” Notice that no “Caucasian,” “white,” or even “European” are all excluded from this list.
A racial requirement like this is a major violation of Title VII and the 1866 Civil Rights Act, according to David Bernstein, a professor at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia School of Law. Speaking with the Daily Wire, he said, “Having a 100% quota for minorities for a position is illegal even under a very generous view of what is allowed.”
Oddly enough, this isn’t NASCAR’s first foray into these kinds of internships, but it is the most flagrant. NASCAR’s Pit Crew Development Program, Driver Development Program, and Supplier Diversity Program are all part of a major corporate Drive for Diversity program that completely excludes anyone white or European.
The Pit Crew Development program continues its rhetoric even further by claiming someone who is “Two or More Races” can apply, they just need to “identify with more than one of the above five races.” Translation- If you are two races, neither can be white.
The decision to run this kind of internship is a dangerous one for NASCAR. Ever since Bubba Wallace and his now infamous and incorrect “noose” allegations, the organization has done everything it can to emphasize equality and racial relations. Going woke, as the kids would say, could easily be the demise of NASCAR, and they need to be aware of the impacts their decisions on the longevity of the sport and its popularity.
Something that up until now was exclusive to the liberals was the thought process that the best way to build up minorities was to start excluding white people. Their theory of exclusion making for the best way to give everyone an equal opportunity is not only illegal, but it is also illogical.
Unfortunately, though, they may have a case for this remaining legal.
With things like minority-only scholarships, fraternities, and even colleges being legal, it would be no wonder if this is allowed to remain intact and unchanged. The liberal officials in government love any excuse to have something for minorities and claim some ridiculous reason for it to be legal or allowed. From making up for previous inequality to allegations that it helped make everything equal, they have tried every trick they can think of to give more minority options and keep whitey from achieving success.
This also raises the question about the practice of affirmative action. While many organizations have used it for years, has its time come, and is it now due to be eliminated from day-to-day use? Should employers be forced to abandon the practice as the races are starting to even out? A service they claimed was needed to even the playing field due to unequal opportunities is now gone as the races spread and whites are going down.
It’s time NASCAR and the rest of the US get rid of the anti-white sentiment. It’s not only getting old, but it’s pointless.
